Abstract

The scintigraphic appearance of an overuse injury at the insertion of the iliotibial band is described. This injury was depicted on three-phase bone scintigraphy as focally increased radionuclide concentration in the anterolateral tibial condyle (lateral tibial tubercle) where the iliotibial band inserts. Overuse injuries involving the insertion of the iliotibial band are uncommon and are not to be confused with a stress fracture or other bony lesion involving the lateral tibial condyle.
